WHAT: Blue Bunny’s Bunny Snacks

STATS: Vary by fla­vor. One of the Salted Caramel Pret­zel snacks con­tains 160 calo­ries and 8 fat, 20 car­bo­hy­drate, zero fiber, 15 sugar and 2 pro­tein grams. We found them at Wal-Mart, 700 Bow­man Road, Lit­tle Rock. Visit blue­bunny.com. THE SKINNY: We’re no dumb bun­nies. We know bet­ter than to keep big con­tain­ers of ice cream in the freezer this time — or any time — of the year.

It’s safer to keep a small in­ven­tory of in­di­vid­u­ally wrapped por­tion-con­trolled frozen nov­el­ties, like Blue Bunny’s new Bunny Snacks, which fea­ture re­duced-fat ice cream and are sold in boxes of six.

We’ve only seen and sam­pled the rich Salted Caramel Pret­zel fla­vor — a round puck of vanilla ice cream, lay­ered with salted caramel and choco­late-cov­ered pret­zel pieces and robed in choco­late-fla­vored coat­ing with caramel driz­zle. But ac­cord­ing to the brand’s web­site, there are three oth­ers: Choco­late Vanilla Twist, Choco­late Chip Cookie and Cook­ies ’N Cream.

Bunny Snacks can sat­isfy the sweet, sum­mery treat crav­ings of as­pir­ing beach bun­nies.
